Expert Answers about Demco

  • Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch for Ram 2500 with Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package Removal from Bed
  • The Demco Hijacker AutoSlide part # DM8550034 is a great hitch for your 2017 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory rail kit. It does require the adapter part # DM6099 to be used like you referenced. The hitch as a total is pretty heavy at 273 lbs but it can be taken apart to make it easier. The head assembly of the hitch is held on with one large pin. The other option is a hitch mounted crane. The MaxxTow crane part # MT70238 that can lift the hitch into the bed and lower it when you...

  • Comparing Demco Hijacker and Pullrite Superglide Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2017 Ram 2500
  • The things that the 18K Demco Hijacker # DM8550034 and the 18K SuperGlide have in common are that they both offer 14" of travel, they are both automatic sliding 5th wheel hitches, have 2-point pivoting hitch heads, are compatible with industry standard base rails, and they are both rated to tow up to an 18K trailer. Both 5th wheel hitches come with a 5-year limited warranty as well. Although they both have the single-jaw system to lock the king pin into place, the SuperGlide hugs it...

  • Recommended Autosliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 with Factory Rail Kit
  • For your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory rail kit, I highly recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034. This is a truly excellent hitch that will slide automatically as you drive to give you 14 inches of additional clearance for tight turns. The hitch also features a premium wraparound jaw that will provide a smooth ride and added security. This is a very safe, sturdy, and realiable hitch hitch that will work well with your 14,000 pound trailer. In order...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Titan XD with Factory Gooseneck
  • Since you have a short bed truck (shorter than 8 feet), you have to use a slider hitch to give you turning clearance otherwise you'll have clearance issues with the cab of your truck and the nose of your trailer. Exceptions to this are if the trailer has a tapered nose designed for this scenario (you'd know if the trailer had this), or if the trailer has a Reese Revolution pin box installed on it. So for your 2017 Nissan Titan XD that has the factory gooseneck hitch what I would recommend...

  • Footprint Dimensions of Demco Recon Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter DM8550045
  • The foot print of the Demco Recon fifth wheel adapter # DM8550045 which is the base of the Recon Hitch part # DM6201 is 28” front to back and 30.5” left to right. Looks like you'd be an inch short as this would have 14 inches forward and rear of the hitch ball center it installs on.

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford Puck System
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6175 weighs approximately 99 lbs. This adapter will fit into the factory puck system on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks from 2011 - 2018. It will then allow for 5th wheel hitches that have above bed industry standard rails (ISR) to be used with the factory puck system. For a lightweight alternative that has the same function as the above adapter, I recommend using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # RP30156 which weighs in at around 55 lbs and is...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Compatibility with GMC OEM Puck System for 5th Wheel Prep
  • There is not an adapter for the 15K Hitchhiker 5th wheel hitch you have with rails running front to back. The only adapter currently available is the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for 8 foot bed # DM6206 of the 6-1/2 foot bed adapter # DM6194. Both of these are rated for up to 21,000 lbs and will give you the industry standard rail locations for the hitches compatible with the horizontal bed rails. My recommendation is to use the Curt A16 # C16520-16025 for a long bed truck or short...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 213 Fiat 500 Behind an RV
  • Demco base plates # DM9518300 fit the 2013 Fiat 500 Gucci and Lounge models. If you have a Pop or Sport model you would instead use # DM9518298. All of the compatible tow bars come with safety cables so you can use them or the ones you have; either way will be fine as long as you are using something. The most cost effective is the coupler style Kwik Tow # DM9511011. But if you are going to be doing a lot of towing I strongly recommend going with a non-binding tow bar such as the...

  • Replacement for Atwood 82543 Surge Brake Actuator
  • The closest option we have to replace your Atwood 82543 actuator is part # 8605001, which is the item you referenced. However, this actuator doesn't have the lockout like your Atwood does. For one with a lockout use # T4339720 but it's an electric lockout. It wires into the reverse lights on your vehicle via the circuit on your trailer connector.

  • Locking Plate for Demco HiJacker and TrailAir Rota-Flex Pin Box
  • In order to use a Demco HiJacker autosliding 5th wheel trailer hitch such as # DM8550024 with a Rota-Flex pin box you will just need to add the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Capture Plates # DM6171. This will allow you to use the pin box with the hitch and prevent the pin box from rotating in the hitch so that the hitch will autoslide.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Automatic Sliding Hitch for Ford Factory Prep Package Puck System

  • The 18K Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 is definitely the way you want to go, and that is not just because we carry it.

  • Does the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6194 Lock Into the Puck System on a 2016 Chevy Silverado
  • Yes, the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Chevy/GMC OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package # DM6194 will be secured by both the gooseneck ball mount point and the 4 puck points in the bed of your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. This will work perfectly with either the 18K Demco Autosliding Hijacker # DM8550034 or the 21K version # DM8550035. Even though the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System with Adapter # AM3200 is a great lightweight 5th wheel system to use, it...

The center post has a lever to lock the adapter into place and then a thumb screw tightens that down to secure it. The 5th wheel hitch will fit right over this adapter to make it more secure. I've attached a video to help. That 5th point of connection is the biggest...

This is a slider hitch that will automatically slide back as you make tight turns which is a very nice feature as getting out and activating a slider mechanism can be a hassle. Especially in inclement weather. The rail kit mentioned is an underbed kit so your bed will be clean and free of large rails when you remove...
